Of course the quality of the defect tracker is directly related to the

Bingo. That's why I'm perfectly happy with mailing lists and no extra burden of a web-based tracker for the packages I maintain on my spare time. Why add overhead to a process that already works for me?


I use Thunderbird as MUA. It allow filtering message by many condition.

For example if I interesting in Bash or Emacs I make filter that check
Subject for entry  'bash' or 'emacs' keyword
and STAR this letter in folder to get more attention and
copy to 'Important' folder as I always chech this directory.

So if someone properly report issue/news I get attention.

For search for already reported issue I use GMANE:

or in google: site: KEYWORD

So with mail list you can be NOTIFIED in realtime and
effectively SEARCH for already reported issue.
